TOSS TO WELLS-ONCAM


AFTER A ROCKY START IN 2014, THE US STOCK MARKET HAS CONTINUED TO DELIVER.

MANY INVESTORS EXPECTED A SUMMER PULLBACK IN THE MARKETS - BUT SO FAR, WE HAVE SEEN NO SUMMER CORRECTION.

IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE FOR INVESTORS TO OBJECTIVELY ASK THEMSELVES, "HOW MUCH RISK CAN I HANDLE".

JIM NOLTE WITH WELLS FARGO ADVISORS IS HERE TO TALK ABOUT HOW INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS CAN ANSWER THIS VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION. Return to index of stories...


WELLS FARGO-PLASMA CG


· We are right in the middle of earnings season and so far the news has been pretty good. The military conflicts in Israel and Russia have caused investors to worry about corporate earnings issues in the coming months and if these isolated developments will spillover into the US economy.

· It does make sense to get a handle on your personal tolerance for risk before the next crisis hits. The goal is to have your personal portfolio invested in a way you are able to live with in good times and bad.

· This is actually harder than it sounds. There is even disagreement among experts whether an investor's risk tolerance changes with the markets or remains steady even as prices become more volatile.

· As an example, on one side of the argument we find researchers such as Michael Finke , a finance professor at Texas Tech University who recently co-authored a study in the Journal of Financial Planning entitled "Do large swings in equity values change risk tolerance?"

· Prof. Finke contends that investors are more risk tolerant after the market has gone up and more risk averse when it is going down.

He points out that more money typically flows into stock funds during market upswings, while investors pull out more when the market melts down.

· On the other side of the argument is Geoff Davey, cofounder and director of FinaAmerica, an Australian firm that has developed risk - tolerance questionnaires that are used by financial planners all over the world.

· Mr. Davey points out that his risk - profile test generates consistent scorers whether it is administered in up or down markets. He feels that people invest more aggressively during bull markets and more conservatively in bear markets because their perception of risk has changed, not their appetite for risk.

He feels that investors underestimate the risk they're taking after stock prices have gone up and overestimate the risk they are taking after prices have dropped.

· I think investors can use both of these perspectives when they evaluate the amount of risk that they can handle. On one hand you recognize that you can be tempted to invest more aggressively when the market is rising and more cautiously when it is falling. Investors have to be careful that decisions made during a stressful time in the market doesn't leave them with a portfolio that is out of sync with how they feel about risk.

· Most of the major brokerage firms have developed questionnaires that help investors determine their risk profiles. The goal is to come away with a suggested mix of stocks and bonds that investors could live with.

· Most of the major firms provide you with the tools to move to the second step of this process. The second step is seeing how the chosen portfolio mix reacts to up and down markets.

· The last step is to determine if the investment mix you are comfortable with will allow you to achieve your financial goals.

· The whole point of this exercise is to make a conscious effort to guard against getting lulled into a false sense of security during booming markets and conversely to become overly cautious and pessimistic in down markets.

· One of the lessons I've learned over the years is that personal peace of mind is really the foundation of any successful financial plan. Return to index of stories...

"al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula possess advanced bomb making skills which have now been passed to extremists in Syria and Iraq.

THEY WORRY THAT THE PUBLIC HAS BECOME COMPLACENT. AND THAT CONGRESSIONAL RED TAPE HAS CRIPPLED OUR NATION'S ABILITY TO PROTECT AGAINST AN ATTACK.

Five days into this Israeli ground invasion into Gaza there is no sign that either side is letting up.

There has been some very intense fighting taking place all along the eastern territory between Gaza and Israel.

Palestinian militants still firing rockets into Israel, so deep into Israel they have now forced major disruptions in Tel Aviv International Airport, including the cancellation by U-S carriers of their flights into the country.

"My message to Israelis and Palestinians is the same: Stop fighting, start talking, and take on the root causes of the conflict so we are not back to the same situation in another six months or a year.

The humanitarian situation here on the ground continues to worsen.

The United Nations now says 100-thousand Palestinians have taken refuge at about 69 U-N schools across the territory.

REPORTER CLOSE:

MORE DISTURBING NEWS COMING OUT OF THE UNITED NATIONS, THOUGH, THAT THEY HAVE ALSO DISCOVERED A SECOND CACHE OF ROCKETS HIDDEN AT A VACANT U-N SCHOOL AND THEY ARE CALLING FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHY ROCKETS OR HOW ROCKETS ULTIMATELY WERE PLACED AT A U-N SCHOOL THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SAFE AND SECURE.

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


FRESH OUT OF COLLEGE GAVIN PERKO IS READY TO GRADUATE TO A BETTER DIET.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

:51 Just to eat healthier, instead of eating fast food all the time. Grocery shopping now that I'm older.

HE PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO PACKAGES- PICKING ITEMS LIKE POPCORN CHIPS OVER SALTY SNACK COUNTERPARTS. LIKE MANY OF US, GAVIN IS SWAYED BY HEALTH CLAIMS.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

1:20 All the naturals, the organic, fat-free, low sugar. All those things kind of catch my eye.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

:27 People have a tendency to read the front of the package, which is all marketing, and forget to turn over and actually look at what's mandated by the Food & Drug Administration, which is the nutrition facts label.

AS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN, JEANNE STRUVE IS WISE TO THE WORK THAT GOES INTO LABELING.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

5:24 Trying to figure out what makes a consumer buy something. And when you can tag it 'no cholesterol' or 'no fat' or 'no sugar' those are things that people go 'oh well, it must be healthy.'

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

They are called health buzz words- and studies show they work. People purchase on the perception of wholesome qualities. It boils down to buyer beware. To increase your food smarts, we have tips to help you read between the lines.

A COMMON PRACTICE IS TO HIDE SUGARS ON THE NUTRITION LABEL, BY BREAKING IT INTO SEVERAL INGREDIENTS.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

7:00 Look for the high fructose corn syrup or the dextrose or the sucrose. They can call it syrup, they can call it brown sugar. What the food manufacturers will do, is put in so much sugar, but they put it in in different names so that they can stagger it throughout the ingredients so it doesn't show up as the number one ingredient.

MANUFACTURERS MAY COUNT ON CONFUSING SHOPPERS WHO AREN'T PREPARED TO DO MATH IN THE GROCERY ISLE.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

1:22 Every 4 grams of sugar equals one tsp of sugar. So for example this product has 17 grams of sugar that would be the equivalent of 4 tsps.

LASTLY, DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE COLOR OF YOUR BREAD.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

11:28 Manufacturers a lot of times just add some caramel coloring, make it brown, and people assume that it's a whole grain. 11:55 Look for the number: 100% whole wheat, 100% whole grain.

TASTY TIDBITS TO INCREASE YOUR FOOD IQ.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

1:35 When I see All Natural or Low Fat, I would assume that they would be healthier for you.

Showers start inland and work their way, very slowly, westward towards the coastline by early evening. Some heavy rains will be possible with any given storm.

Temperatures today will be hot yet again. Low 90s will be the theme for Tuesday in most areas. Heat Indices today will reach into the upper 90s.

Lows tonight drop down to near normal in the mid 70s.

Tropical Update

PLANES ANTI MISSLE-ONCAM


AS INVESTIGATORS SIFT THROUGH THE WRECKAGE OF THE MALAYSIAN AIRLINER SHOT DOWN BY A MISSILE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOW WONDERING IF AIRLINES CAN DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT ITS PASSENGERS.

BRIAN TODD TAKES A LOOK AT THE POSSIBILITY OF ANTI-MISSILE TECHNOLOGY ONBOARD PASSENGER JETS. Return to index of stories...


PLANES ANTI MISSLE-PKG


AS CREWS SIFT THROUGH THE WRECKAGE OF MALAYSIA-AIR FLIGHT 17. CONCERNS ARE GROWING THAT MORE COMMERCIAL AIRLINERS COULD BE VULNERABLE TO ATTACKS LIKE THIS.

"Of course after this attack there's going to be increasing pressure to build- put some kind of defense system on commercial airliners."

U-S SENATOR MARK KIRK IS WORRIED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF AMERICAN PASSENGERS. CALLING ON THE F-A-A ".TO INSTALL COUNTERMEASURES" ON COMMERCIAL PLANES.

THOSE SYSTEMS COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS: A NOVEMBER 2003 ATTACK ON A D-H-L CARGO PLANE OVER BAGHDAD. IT MANAGED TO LAND SAFELY.

ISRAEL ALREADY HAS COUNTER-MEASURES ON ITS EL-AL PLANES. DEVELOPED AFTER TERRORISTS LAUNCHED A SHOULDER-FIRED MISSILE- AND BARELY MISSED AN ISRAELI PASSENGER JET TAKING OFF FROM MOMBASA, KENYA IN 2002.

ON THE ISRAELI PLANES- A LASER FIRED FROM A TURRET MOVES TOWARD A MISSILE AND DEFLECTS IT AWAY.

BUT THOSE ARE DESIGNED TO COUNTER ONLY SIMPLER, SHOULDER-FIRED MISSILES.

TO FEND-OFF MORE SOPHISTICATED, RADAR-GUIDED MISSILES LIKE THE ONE APPARENTLY FIRED AT THE MALAYSIA AIRLINES JET.

ONE POSSIBLE COUNTER-MEASURE, ACCORDING TO EXPERTS AND VARIOUS REPORTS-- COULD BE FIRED FROM THE COMMERCIAL PLANE IN A CANISTER--

THAT CANISTER WOULD BURST OPEN, AND SEND OUT WHAT'S CALLED 'CHAFF'. METAL CONFETTI--

".reflective aluminum particles that create a cloud that's much larger than the aircraft, and this cloud distracts the missile- because the radar cross-section of the cloud is much bigger than that of the aircraft. And so the missile is thrown off-target."

BUT EXPERTS SAY IT'S ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS- BEFORE THE MISSILE COULD LOCK BACK ONTO THE AIRCRAFT.

AND INSTALLING AND MAINTAINING THEM WOULD BE DIFFICULT.

IT COULD EASILY PULL PLANES OFF THE TARMAC AND CANCEL FLIGHTS- WHEN THEY MALFUNCTION.

THEY'RE ENORMOUSLY EXPENSIVE.

"And sort of the lowball estimate on that is about 1-million dollars per aircraft, to build such a system."

AND FORMER FIGHTER-PILOTS TELL US, IT'S NOT SAFE FOR COMMERCIAL PILOTS TO DEPLOY THOSE 'CHAFF' CANISTERS.

ONCE THAT SHOOTS OUT AND DISTRACTS THE MISSILE, THEY SAY-- THE PILOT HAS TO TAKE VERY ABRUPT, EVASIVE MANEUVERS. PRACTICAL IN A FIGHTER-JET, BUT ON A HUGE COMMERCIAL PLANE, THAT COULD ENDANGER THE PASSENGERS. Return to index of stories...
